Much Ado About Nothing

by William Shakespeare

Wednesday, 20 June 2018 - Saturday, 23 June 2018

Synopsis

The Spread Eagle Players presents the classic Shakespearean tale of young love, dueling wits and dastardly schemes. When Don Pedro and his band of men return to Messina, the young Count Claudio and Hero quickly plan to marry, whilst the sarcastic Benedick and Beatrice engage in verbal sparring matches. But will the young couple wed? Can Benedick and Beatrice be convinced that their quarrels are borne out of love not hate? And will Don Pedro's brother be successful in his plot to bring misery to all?
